What we love now... Italian ranunculus

Italy is a magical country and everything that stems from it is seemingly beautiful! It must be the wine and olive oil, right? Such is the case with these incredible ranunculus stems that recently became available to us from the region of Liguria. Here are a few close-ups of the amazing pink and butter blooms we received two weeks ago. They are still alive in the studio and still look this beautiful! 
The photo below if of the grower, Emanuela. Emanuela says “growing these flowers is more of a passion than a culture. I treat each bunch of flowers as I do my children." She is obviously a wonderful Mother! These blooms are larger and more incredible than any variation of ranunculus we have seen to date.
